Toronto, Canada – Morega Systems said Friday that it has successfully developed “the industry’s first Ultra HD 4K media mobility solution,” enabling the viewing of Ultra HD content on any screen.
Morega working with long-term partner ViXS Systems will be first to market with an Ultra HD 4K 10-bit High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution, the companies said.
ViXS’ eighth-generation XCode 6400 SoC will be the first chip to hit the market to address “the challenges of 10-bit media processing in a single low-power, cost-effective package – driving the transition to Ultra HD across the entire content distribution value chain,” the companies said.
The solution will enable Ultra HD to move beyond Ultra HDTV big-screens to other screens, both inside and outside of the home, in either streaming format or as a file transfer for offline viewing, the company said.
The complete Morega system includes:
• a Media Mobility application embedded on video source devices (e.g. IP video gateway),
• applications for all mainstream consumer device platforms (iOS, Android, MacOS, Windows), and
• servers in the cloud to handle user and device management, remote access, and capture of usage-based statistics with analytics.
Morega’s customers will be able to rapidly deploy reliable and scalable media mobility solutions, the company said.
“Consumers today require the content they love to always be available – regardless of device or location,” said Buddy Snow, Morega CEO. “Morega has been leading the development of seamless media mobility for almost a decade, and the achievement announced today – and made possible by ViXS’ extraordinary XCode 6400 SoC – further illustrates our commitment to helping enrich consumers’ lives through innovation.”
Morega will showcase the Ultra HD 4K solution in the ViXS booth (South Hall 2, MP25953) during International CES, January 7-10.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
